This beautiful painting was inspired by the warm sunny days and cool nights we have had this week, Lake Wylie is a beautiful lake any time of the year but I do love it even more in spring. After the long winter months of brown, brown, and more brown, ( even the water in the lake turns muddy) the trees explode into the most vivid shades of green. Of course with spects of magenta where the red buds peek thru and often the wisteria will lace the fringes of the tree tops with its lavender trail of color and who can forget the dog woods with their soft kiss of buttery yellow. All of these trees give you that brightness and the shades of easter which always seems to complement all that luscious green.
Approximately 6.5 by 8.5 inches watercolor on paper.
